Re:lawnmower blennie


Lawnmowers are funny little creatures and one of my favorites. They each seem to have very different personalities. Your guy is more than likely picking at them. Seahorses do have algae growth on them and lawnmowers eat algae, but from my personal experience not off the horses. These massive weedeaters are very curious, friendly, mischeivious, and some even say aggressive. I think mischevious is the proper explanation. Have you noticed any torn/frayed fins, or bites on the horses? Watch carefully and see if he setttles down once he finds no challenge in his game of chase, likely your seahorses are not amused by his antics, and he soon will be looking for other ways to confuse you. Removal isn’t easy, but a trap would work well. Mine would take food from my hands ( and they do eat meat) dont be surprised when he starts darting in and out of horses at feeding time to snitch his own mysis. You may not have to worry about it, if the fish is new, I have found that most lawnmowers dont do well in captivity.
Good Luck and watch him closely.
